Race Report: Deltona Honor & Remember 5K 2016

The inaugural Deltona Honor & Remember 5K took place on a very foggy morning at Dewey Boster Park. The race was part of the Live Your Life Well series and meant to honor veterans and first responders, with proceeds benefiting local charities. The run took us through the park and neighboring residential areas.

Training & Goals
This race was the weekend following Wine & Dine weekend. I didn't have any particular goals for this race. I just can't resist local charity races. I was looking forward to a nice training run in a spot I'd never run before.

Race Day: November 13, 2016
The fog made the drive in a bit slow and the humidty was stifling. The temp at the start was a cool 63°F with 100% humidity.

Mile 1: 10:02

Mile 2: 10:24

Mile 3+: 10:34, 1:34*

The fog persisted deep into the morning and the entire run was shrouded in humid mist. I can deal with heat much better than humidity so I was pretty miserable for the duration of this race, oh well!

Chip time: 31:57
Placement details: 7/14 in Age Group; 46/121 overall
Race Amenities: All runners got a cotton race shirt and a small finisher medal
Cost: $23.00

*I often forget to turn off my Garmin after a race, so the final time is skewed.
